Happy Birthday, Eliana!

Happy, happy 4th birthday, sweet Elly. You truly are a gift -- an answer to prayers. We thank God for you! We love your sweet heart to your brothers and sister, your joyful personality and love for life (and accessories!), your creative nature and the delight you find in figuring things out... we love how you so quickly say sorry and offer exuberant hugs when you realize you've been wrong. We love how you love people and we love the stories you tell. We love you. Happy Birthday!
